>does anybody have a recipe for baklava?

Get a box of filo leaves (the nifty pastry things that are the flaky part
of baklava. There should be a recipe on that.

The recipe as I remember it is:

1 box filo leaves
1 pound unsalted butter
whole cloves

1/2 pound (more or less) walnuts, chopped
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp cinammon

for syrup:

1 cup honey
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
2 Tbsp lemon juice (more or less to taste)

melt the butter

Mix walnuts, 1/2 cup sugar and the cinammon.

butter bottom of pan with pastry brush
lay one filo leaf on bottom of pan
butter filo

(This gets to be a regular thing. Every filo leaf has its obligatory
coating of butter.

Repeat 12 times on bottom

Put some walnut mixture on.

Lay four filo leaves (with butter)

more walnuts.

4 more filo

More walnuts (anyone see a pattern here)

When you run out of walnuts, 12 more filo leaves

Refrigerate for an hour

Make 1" wide cuts through the entire mess, then diagonally
about every 1"

Place a clove in the middle of each Baklave diamond

Bake at 350 degrees for about an your or until brown.

While baking, mix 1 cup sugar, 1 cup water, 1 cup honey until
sugar is dissolved. (Leftover does wonderful things for
hot tea)

Pour syrup mixture on and allow to cool.


This is from memory, but since I never follow the recipe anyway,
one is encouraged to experiment!
